I’ve had one shower already and will be having another this weekend.

The first one was held by his family, in his hometown. It was definitely a couples shower, men and women there. He was by my side the entire time because I didn’t know most of the people there, and it would have felt awkward if it was just me accepting gifts from people I didn’t know. We played all of the ridiculous games and he LOVED it. He loves attention.

My shower this weekend is in my hometown, and I know everybody there so Fiance will not be there. He’s okay with that because he doesn’t know most of these people, and it’s all women.

My husband dropped me off and left.  Then he seriously came back an hour later with his brother, they grabbed food and left again.  Goofballs.  He did come back to pick me up and load all the heavy gifts in the car.  I liked having just the girls there for the shower.  Although I love co-ed showers too.  I don’t think a man could last in a room with women, looking at home appliances and such.  At least mine wouldn’t!

@ddw: I’m with you as far as not knowing most of his family members. The only time I see his extended family is around the holidays. I would prefer that my Fiance is at my shower, even if just to open gifts. I don’t want to wander who got me what. I barely know their names. haha.

My mom and his mom are traditional, though. So we’ll see.

I had a co-ed shower (really more of a boozy brunch) and it was a lot of fun! The boys left to watch the game on the TV downstairs at the bar (we were at a restaurant) for the gift opening part, though. Can’t really blame them. I made my Fiance stay, I’m terrible!

@Treasure43: haha my Fiance did that game too!

His dad was there to drop off his mom, but there was food, so they stayed to eat.  My dad was there too, but as soon as we were done eating, all the boys left and came back at the end of the shower to say bye and thank you to everyone.
